Contempo Salt or Pepper Shaker



Spice up a simple salt shaker by wrapping it with Kreinik Facets—a bead-like yarn that gives a metallic, nubby texture that’s somewhere between retro-trendy and contemporary kitsch and just plain fun. We picked green, but choose from any Facet color to match your décor.

Contempo Salt or Pepper Shaker


  • Simple glass salt shaker (and/or pepper shaker)
  • Red liner, double-sided heavy duty Treasure Tape™ 1”
  • Kreinik Facets™, one skein, in a color to match your décor


  1. Make sure the glass is clean and dry.
  2. Attach tape to the sides of your shaker, either by cutting pieces to fit or wrapping from the roll of tape.
  3. Peel off the red liner to expose the sticky tape.
  4. At the bottom of the shaker, secure Facets by placing on the tape, pressing down, and holding the end as you get started.
  5. Wrap Facets around the shaker, placing strands close together, until your design is completed.

Note: We don’t recommend that you wash your new shaker in the dishwasher after it’s been decorated.

Kreinik threads available through needlework stores or www.kreinik.com.

Love this craft. Great idea for a plain salt and pepper shaker. Thank you


i really thought this was a very good idea for all holidays or just to spice things up. I haven't had the chance to do the project yet but I am planing to as soon as I can heal my broken foot.
